are waiting for president obama to talk about changing that and other aspects of the economy. that is the woman that will be introducing him. and we'll have him in just a few moments. mike viqueira joins us for now with more on what to expect from the president. good morning. >> stephanie. good morning. as usual when it comes to politics and policy in washington, it is complicated. the president is trying to put forward his agenda for the state of the union speech and for the last three years of his presidency. he is going to take the populous tack that we have seen before, and tie the affordable care act into all of it. he is going to be talking about minimum wage, and disparities in in income every growing in this country, and hearken back to past speeches he has made talking about making income distribution more quillable. and he had a lot of shoring up to do. this is a left-lanes think tank, the president going to the pourest region in terms of income in this city, ward 8, and he is going to be talking about empowering people who are economically disadvantaged and bringin
into this a little bit talking about young people. what the obama care package is was intentionally designed to screw over young people. was it a mistake? it wasn't an accident. it was a package intentionally designed to screw over young people. he's spending all day now talking about young people. to your point, it's very true. we never tried at a federal level ending junk lawsuits. never tried having doctors and hospitals tell us what they are charging. never tried pooling people together to drive down costs and increase access. we have never tried it. we proposed it. they shut us out from the process. the democrats say either european health care or nothing. that's a false choice. most would vote him out of office. >> 50 -- >> go ahead. >> 52% of young people would recall the president based on this law. >> and 57% don't want obama care. now you look at another core constituency. we heard after the election about the latino vote in america. look at the latest poll out of gallup. the support of of the president has gone down 23% among hispanic voters. that's a huge discrepancy. from where he was a
for american progress doing the introduction for president obama who will talk about income inequality in this country and draw a correlation to how getting the aca up and running can help draw and close that gap. joining me right now is white house -- nbc white house correspondent peter alexander to talk more about what we expect to hear from the president. peter, the rollout from the white house has been that we expect the president and those that have been tasked with talking about the aca to highlight things each day this month. so how much is this speech really going to be focused on wa obama care. >> well, each day leading up to that december 23rd deadline will focus on the affordable care act. there's a youth event where the president will speak more specifically to health care but this white house will make it clear that health care security is tied into economic security. this is in ways going to preview the state of the union, one of the central themes for the president, which is the desire to create access for all in terms of opportunity to provide his vision for economic se
, i respect what you d and i respect your question. >> in 2008 candidate obama talked about spreading the wealth around. that little clip goes viral, oh, he's this redistributor. but now as you point out, pope francis is, like, yeah, spread the wealth. like i was having this imaginary clay major leagues in my head where joe the plumber asked that same question of pope francis and pope francis said, no, seriously, you have to spread the wealth around. >> another radical, radical christian had that idea, jesus christ. >> that jesus guy. >> look, every major religious tradition, i grew up in the jewish tradition, muslim tradition teaches this, too, that social justice is beyond charity. it is making sure that if you're working hard and playing by the rules, you can get ahead. and those people who are disabled, those people who are seniors, those people who are senior, and that is two-thirds of the food stamp s.n.a.p. caseload that you should be able to eat. this is not some radical idea. this is a mainstream idea that people like bob dole and richard lugar, conservative republicans, adva
at the age of 95. and just within the last half hour, president obama came out and talked about this world leader, this transformer, this human being, what he meant to america, what he meant to the world, what he meant to south africa, the impact he had and his legacy. >> we've lost one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth. he no longer belongs to us. he belongs to the ages. >> guided by the hopes, not fears is also how the president described nelson mandela. said he drew inspiration from mandela. had a profound effect on his life. and i think you could see that in the statement that the president was giving tonight. nelson mandela passing away at the age of 95. i was also impressed by the comment of charlene hunter who told us we knew this was coming, but she still was shedding a tear tonight. the passing of someone of this tremendous world impact certainly is going to have a profound effect on many people. but she being close to the family even when it happens when you know it's going to happen, it has tha
in the country. when president obama was here a few short months ago, he talked about the ways it has the potential to be an after our strengths are linked to one another. i think that's the best way to memorialize all that he meant to us. >> we know december 15th is when will be the final good-bye, if that's appropriate to say, we'll see each other again, but the final good-bye here. i can't imagine there won't be a television set or radio on where people will gather and watch this moment that will be unmatched as far as the diversity and the range of people who sincerely say that this man changed their life, set the compass of their direction in life. >> that's so true, tamron. during the anti-apartheid moment, we used to chant all the time, the whole world is watching, here again he has made certain that the world world is watching, everyone is pausing and reflecting on what this man meant to us all. we count ourselves blessed to have lived in the shadow of his grace all of these years and it's just going to be one of those moments spoken of for years. where people ask where you we
. >> sounds a lot like -- i don't know -- capitalism. senator, president obama promised to not let detroit go bankrupt. he may have been talking about the auto industry or the city, but did the president lie? >> he's given a lot of promises. he promised we could keep our doctor if we liked them also. there have been a lot of things the president hasn't come through with. i think this is one of them and i think this is the difference between democrats and republicans. democrats are promising you something but not coming through. republicans are promising a real solution. this is also, we have had 50 years of trying government stimulus and it hasn't worked. now we're going to try a free market stimulus where the money gets in the hands of the businesses that can use it successfully to create jobs. >> let's turn the topic to race. let's be honest, senator, the republicans nor the democrats have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are perceived as not caring about mino

. there is no way to talk around it the other thing that the obama administration the white house is pushing is the success of the exchanges because they got 30,000 people supposedly enrolled. let's assume it's enrolled. they aren't enrolled. >> no ones that paid premiums? >> exactly. shopping and semienrolled. aspirationally enrolled let's put it that way. in two days. you do the math on that and continue that enrollment up until the deadline of the 23rd of december, you come out with a number, which means that of the a million people who have lost insurance, 6% will have it restored. all the rest will not have it. and that's without adding a single person who never had insurance in the first place. it is a disaster with the numbers that the white house is touting. >> another democrat, holding town halls in west virginia, senator joe manchin talking about what he he wants, a delay. >> transitional year and see if we with k. make these things work. if we best and we can't bit off more than we can chew. get back to what we can agree on. pretty common sense in west virginia how do you things.
on "meet the press" talking about the legacy and the lessons of nelson mandela. charles overtree is in boston with us this morning. professor, the modern influence that he has had. you think about president obama who meets him, and we have the pictures of it back in 2005. he's still a senator, and mandela had been encouraged to meet with this rising star in the democratic party, and this was their only meeting at the four seasons hotel in washington, the president reflecting on the life and times of mandela from the white house on thursday. >> i'm one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my very first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> and it's interesting, he being too young for the civil rights era, reverend jackson, but first to charles ogletree, this was the connection point was apartheid. this was the inspiration nelson mandela, who he could experience realtime, the joy of that deliverance realtime. >> that's exactly right. i was a student at sta
their families better. what's a better policy starting right now that president obama should be talking about instead of what he's doing, which is hurting poor people such they can make more money no matter how much it costs. >> look, just to be clear. i like the question, but i don't agree with the premise. i do think a moderate increase would help. to answer the part of your question that i agree with, here's what i think he should do. the earned income tax is a very important pro work subsidy. this is a good way to help low-wage people. but for childless adults, adults who don't have kids, it's rea y really -- i would increase the childless adult part of the earned income credit so that single folks can make a decent wage, as well. >> so you -- will you acknowledge i didn't set you up, bernstein? >> not only acknowledge that, i'm ready to give you a hug. >> okay. >> i'm ready to do that to you too. >> all right. man hug. little man hug action. >> where are you? >> i'm in d.c. i'm not willing to come up to jersey to give you a hug. >> that could take a while. and you can use my -- some of
, is this the evil empire speech reapplied to obama care? i mean, i've never heard the word evil used to many times. i love the way sarah palin is unbelievably delicious at this. she talks about and those death panels are in there. i love the way she says the death panels are in there somewhere. like they're creeping around inside. >> i mean, sam very rightly and logically said these people should stop because the president said, repeated today, and reminded them that he's going to be in office. he can veto anything. so they ought to calm down. but the fact is when you watch a few of those clips and when you talk to people in the movement and when you cover some of these groups and so forth, you realize that there's something else going on here. it isn't just a piece of legislation with these people. it's a kind of crusade against some deeply evil force. it almost harkens back to the days when people were worried about communist infiltration and there were people from abroad that were going to control every aspect of your life. in the clips they used words like killing and death. and they used the
snowy white house. president obama spoke yesterday where he talked about essentially the fact that he doesn't believe this is a done deal. he said, look, the chances of this deal with iran actually being ultimately successful are about 50/50. he also underscored the point that, look, this is a test. according to this administration, it's a six-month deal aimed at trying to see how serious iran really is about scaling back its nuclear programs. the president highlighting the fact that inspectors are in iran and the significance of that. again, essentially saying this is not a done deal, but it's something that -- it's a first step that he believes needs to be taken. important to point out he was speaking to a largely israeli audience, an audience that is skeptical of this deal that feels as though it doesn't go far enough. here's a little bit more of what president obama had to say. take a listen. >> if at the end of six months it turns out we can't make a deal, we're no worse off, and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and
services the data storage industry. >>> happening today president obama will hold an event with those who are getting health insurance coverage. he will talk up improvements made to healthcare.gov, the troubled website that just got a major overhaul, by early monday evening 750,000 users had logged on. officials promise the site could handle 50,000 people simultaneously. when the number reached 35,000, a new queuing system kicked in. >> very frustrating for me because i need insurance so badly. and it seems like something in the system or something that's not working. >> the white house says the system works because the website did not crash. but some people had to wait in the new queuing system for hours. emails are sent to users when the site is ready to handle their request. >>> developing news now. autopsy results for paul walker could be released today and we are getting a look at new video of the fiery crash that killed the actor. the surveillance video was taken from a building across the street shortly after the accident on saturday. there was smoke in that video. it started to ri
the first election against obama. >> it was interesting. i was having lunch with a friend today who is the executive director at the feminist press talking about what this time means and the intersection of race and gender and poverty and privilege that we're literally between a barack and hillary place. there is something going on looking at race and gender and i think the black community is very forgiving. r. kelly can still sell out arenas. so i think it is more really bill who hurt the community with some of his flippant remarks and they pushed their privilege. >> all the black leaders who have been quoted are saying full, square center he is being for given and she is being forgiven. >> and this time in history is very -- it's almost as important as the policies. i think they also have to look at who michelle is in this relationship because if you want to get the black vote you get to black women. black women are who showed up and rallied around barack and really made that happen. she is the one who is black and woman. >> i like how you call everybody by their first name. >> i
. mandela was one of bush's harshest critics when it came to iraq. when we talked to bush about the ailing mandela earlier this year, there were no hard feelings. >> he promoted freedom. he was a really great leader. he was smart and capable. and made his mark. >> reporter: obama only met mandela once. ever so briefly as a junior senator. but his connection may be the most profound. it was mandela, he says, who awakened him to the wider world. inspiring him to political activism. >> he gave me a sense of what human beings can do when guided by their hopes, not by their fears. >> reporter: in other words, there night not be a president obama if not for nelson mandela. for "this week." jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >>> and we're lucky now to be joined by four individuals who had unique working relationships with nelson mandela. bill keller. dr. gay mcdougall, who campaigned for his release from prison. stan greenberg, his pollster and strategist. and ambassador jendayi frazer. thanks to all of you for being here. bill, let me begin with you. we ended the piece with the relationship be
on at that time, look at their calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that he is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> let's talk a little bit about priorities. seiu, i think they spent close to $30 million helping the president of the united states get elected. so they spent $30 million. how many times did andy stern, sciu chief visit the white house? 50, 60 times, something like that. it does show that -- you look at that and think, well, maybe he's more interested in having the job than doing the job. but as he just pointed out, it's all about priorities. yesterday i think we heard the president of the united states say when he retires from the white house, you know what he'd like to do? he would like to host the sports center top ten program. >> right. >> maybe it will work with your husband. >> i know condoleeza rice wants to be nfl commissioner. >> speechless. just to think about this, this is his signature plan. how does that make you feel is this right now in your hom
. what could cause the price >>> president obama back at the white house right now after a brand-new interview at a local university. >> chris matthews, host of "hardball" is here to talk about his exclusive interview. >> you played hardball with the president down from our station. we imagine you talked about health care. >> i did. i got the question people are really asking. the poll numbers are down everywhere. it's a sense the government isn't being tightly controlled. people aren't getting follow through. getting it executed was a problem. i asked what the management system is. i asked him about, you know, this dysfunction in washington, it's the number one concern right now. politicians can't do their job and compromise. we are under strict -- in terms of his words. he was wonderful, when i heard the speech, it seemed parallel to what pope francis is saying with economic justice, especially the poor people. he was really, i'm sure he never said this before. he started talking about what it meant to him and what he's in politics for and why. later on, he gave a portrait of p
a couple of things to talk about. i want to ask you about the big front page politico piece. the paper tiger. glenn thrush's piece. >> glenn has been looking at the weakness of the obama cabinet. there's frustration in the cabinet and on capitol hill. they are putting a republican in the cabinet. a defense secretary. and people feel sees disappointed folks and at a time how he'll define how to be his defense secretary. he's leading the department in a period of entrenchment. does he fight those? does he go along with the white house in trying to trim spending as much as obama would like. it's interesting to see how much frustration there is in the cabinet not just hagel, but also sebelius. one of the reasons when you have these incidents like you do with the health care system -- >> why is general frustration. inside the white house do they think they are incompetent. >> they are not living up to standards with hagel. he's kind of lackluster when they thought he would come in there and be much more forceful. >> why did they think that? if they asked anyone in his own party who was a re
in the fall and press white house and other officials about that. even a single sentence in these talks would have been a huge worldwide scoop. at the time the story didn't meet its standards. ap officials aren't saying whether the obama administration asked them to delay the story until a after the announcement that john kerry had struck a deal with tehran. the ap got the same request. and get a whiff of this. the denver post has been looking for a weed editor, with colorado having legalized the selling and smoking of small amounts of pot, the paper is creating a website for recreational marijuana use. no word on how much firsthand research is required. >> and if it is, you can't do it at your job, because you can't come in drunk or you can't come in, this was in the memo, actually smelling of weed. and they're also hiring a pot critic and a potted advice colu nis. >> they say they're on the forefront of an international story. there is some merit to thark but come on. >> does this fall in the category of certain fringe benefits of being a journalist? that's it for this edition of media buzz
spectrum. but none really walked and talked the way that mandela did. his legacy in south africa will be unmatched of that of anyone we can think about. >> we are awaiting president obama. he is set to give a statement on the death of nelson mandela from the white house. what impacts has nelson mandela had on u.s. president politics? >> two things. first of all, i did want to make a point, which in south africa, there is actually going to be a lot of impact here. he a.n.c. has elections coming up, and they have had a hard time of it. the economy has had a difficult time. the a.n.c. has never gotten since 2% of the vote mandela was in charge of the country. they were set to under perform, and now they are not. now the vote turn out will be great, and it will be very solidly pro a.n.c. the legacy of mandela is really going to matter there. for the united states, in recent years mandela has had the kind of impact that martin luther king had. -- unifying union figure that gets beyond race. some of the best moments that you see in american statesmanship reflects the kind of rhetoric
. president obama clearly says he drew inspiration from mandela and one of the first things he did was to protest against apartheid to make a political statement many, many years ago. talking about some of the things that have stayed with him, what he will miss the most and talking about how nelson mandela really belongs to the ages. meant so much to -- he meant so much to so many. >> we're back right after this. >>> if you ride metro, get ready to reach a little deeper in your pocket next year. the transit agency unveiled a slew of new fare possibilities and of them mean you will pay more. debra alfarone breaks it down for us. >> bottom line, it's going to cost you more of this to ride metro's trains and buses, but how much remains a question. >> i think if fare goes up, you're going to see people start taking cabs and stuff. >> but metro is betting against that. today general manager richard sarles unveiled his plan. come july if approved it would cost an average of 15 cents more to take a bus, a dime higher to ride the rails and a quarter more to park. the hikes would raise $30
? how many israeli soldiers died when we were over there -- you are over there fighting in iraq? we talk about israel this, israel that. not join our coalition. you're making fun of president obama, he cannot have anybody follow or get in the coalition. israel should have been the first ones with the coalition. we do noth israel, want them in our coalition. there are some problems between israel and palestine. it would make things more complex and we would not have been able to get a lot of our partners and allies that we got in iraq and afghanistan if israel had been part of that. they understand that. israel helped us with intelligence and other things. putting them in the coalition and having is really big on the ground in these countries -- putting them in this coalition and having israeli boots on the ground would have done more harm in these countries. president bush did not kill any soldiers, islamic terrorists did. we went to iraq for the right reasons. assad has usedt these chemical weapons that iraq had. they went straight to syria, ass ad has had been sent. we went in there fo

the curriculum but now is being attacked as if barack obama himself has come up with this common core. having said that, i think that i'll use the numbers, you know, by survey in connecticut. 72% of teachers in the affected areas -- so we're talking about math, science, we're talking about literacy -- embrace it. 72%. only 2 or 3 -- you know, depending on how the question is asked, only 2 or 3% think that it will lead to lower or worse result. and the other bunch just not taking a position. so when you have that kind of embracing of that concept and when teachers and administrators have had enough time to look at what's, what people want to emphasize, then i think they're moving in the right direction. we're certainly seeing that in connecticut. no large scale movement to delay or abandon common core. i think there's a recognition that we need to hold ourselves accountable for success. >> excuse me. as you think about the common core, what are the couple of key strengths that you think it offers? or is there anything in particular about the implementation that you're nervous about? >> um, key
